CoVid19, Community Arousal and the Kidney-Heart Axis – Webinar
July 17 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
3 CEU/PDAs (pending NCCAOM, CA)
CoVid19 is an invisible, insidious, ever-present threat. George Floyd’s murder has ignited a similar felt sense of “inescapable attack” that racism presents to black, brown and indigenous people. Many individuals, as well as our nation as a corporate body, are experiencing deep, historic wounds. What has been held within is now in full view – and has become more available for transformation and healing.
This class will use polyvagal theory and the five element model of acupuncture and Asian medicine as a contextual framework for exploring:
- The critical importance of regulating the relationship between the Kidney and the Heart; the Water and the Fire, in complex trauma.
- The long-term impact of a freeze response imposed on the Earth Element in complex trauma
- How healers can support the development of capacity in the Sympathetic Nervous System, or the Wood Element to protect and defend ourselves and others.
